Latest news about the progress of the Neighbourhood Development Plan


News Update Autumn 2015

Have Your Say!

Leeds City Council are asking for comments on their site allocation plan which is currently in draft form. The plan identifies land where new homes, employment and green spaces are to be located.

Visit to have your say. Or just go to and scroll down the home page to the Consultation icon.

The closing date for comments is 16th November.

There are more details in the item immediately above this

Picnic on the Village Green

The Parish Council has been asked if we will be holding an event to celebrate The Queen's 90th Birthday next year. Although we would very much like to hold another Fun Day as we did for the Diamond Jubilee, sadly this won't be possible. This took a great deal of time and work and unfortunately we don't have enough resources (i.e. Parish Councillors) to put on such a big event.

However, we would like to mark the occasion and various ideas have been suggested. One was to have a “Grand Picnic Party” on a specified day, encouraging people to take picnics to the Village Green, possibly with a brass band to entertain them.We would welcome other ideas and, as with the Jubilee, we would be able to offer grants for community street parties or other celebratory events. So time to put your thinking caps on.

Boundary Stone Update 1

The Parish Council will be improving the area by the Boundary Stone on Alwoodley Lane which currently has a couple of flower beds surrounded by untidy grass. We intend to remove the flower bed in front of the stone, prepare the ground for re-turfing, plant bulbs to naturalise in the grass and then lay new turf. The flower bed alongside the wall will also be tidied. Some of the plants will be retained and a mixture of bulbs to provide a longer show of colour through spring into summer will be planted. We hope the improvements will deter cars from being parked there.

Boundary Stone Update 2

We would just like to mention that the Highways Department have confirmed that the latest boundary stone, on Harrogate Road, meets all their requirements as to size, location and road safety.

New Councillor

We are delighted to welcome Ramesh Khetani as a new member of the Parish Council. Many of you will know him from his time at the late lamented King Lane Post Office and we are sure he will be a hard working member of the PC.

More Needed!

Ramesh brings the number of Parish Councillors to 9 but there are still vacancies for 2 more public spirited people to bring the PC up to full strength, so why not join us?

This is a very important announcement!

Site Allocations Plan 'Your City, Your Plan

- Working with you to find the best places for new homes, jobs, retail and green space'

A major city-wide public consultation is taking place for two months starting on 22nd September 2015. This consultation will gather the views of residents and local businesses on the Site Allocations Plan and the Aire Valley Leeds Area Action Plan.

Part of the Core Strategy, the Site Allocations Plan identifies the sites for development for the 66,000 new homes identified as being needed in Leeds over the next 16 years. The Aire Valley Leeds Area Action Plan does the same, for the area within the Aire Valley. The plans also cover spaces for jobs, retail, and green space.

This is a major public consultation potentially affecting every resident and business within Leeds and every community across the city. It is important to have your say on the plans.

From 22 September 2015, you can view the plans and share your views online at and/or come to one of the 'drop-in sessions' happening across the city. If you have any questions about taking part in this consultation then please

email Planning Services at


phone 0113 222 4409

Please tell your friends and family about this major consultation so they have a chance to share their views.

Our long-awaited new Village Green sign has finally been installed and we hope you like it as much as we do!  The Village Green is the only piece of public green space within the Parish and the sign symbolises its value to our community, both now and long into the future.

The first six mini flower beds have now been planted up and are looking very colourful. We have already received  positive comments and are now considering other suitable sites.

Our Christmas Lights are here again!; The tree lights on King Lane and at Alwoodley Gates are back again. A third set has been installed near the Royal Mail Parcel Depot on Harrogate Road. The lampost lights at King Lane are installed and will be switched on December 1st!
